  1. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hi all Our Cruze has 120K miles on it. It has been a wonderful car in many ways but it has unfortunately had a lot of body work (deer, tree falling on it etc). At this point the front struts have been replaced twice in less than a year... Once with mystery parts from a body shop as part of...
  2. Gen2 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I am thinking of fitting my Gen 2 LT with the 16" tire up to the 17"X 7.5" wheels with 225-45-R17 Has anyone done this or vise versa? I looking to find out if the difference in ride smoothness is very noticeable? I didn't get the Redline because I felt the 18" would be too bumpy so I see the...

    Traded in our 2012 Cruze for a 2017 Malibu. Our Cruze never had most of the issues talked about on here except the leaking antifreeze hose coming from the coolant tank...which btw broke off and sprayed coolant everywhere. That was about it though. There was only 32000 miles on it when we traded...

    So finally after 5 years of owning my rig, I've committed to customization. Simply put, I've gotten bored with the car. I am a truck guy. But due to my family situation 5 years ago I went with the most economical decision while staying true to my gm roots and bought the cruze. It's a great car...

  9. Gen1 Powertrain
    Hello! I'm new to the forum. I wanted to get advise from some other Chevy Cruze owners. I recently bought a 2012 Chevy Cruze LS on a Friday. When I was test driving, I asked if the car had cruise control, and the salesman said "Uh....I think so. It should, since it has bluetooth." Then he...

    Is it just me or do the Firestone's seem to be rather harsh at soaking up bumps etc? They don't seem to havee smoothest ride IMO. So question being does anyone have tires that seem smoother than the OE,s?

    If you want to see something really funny, test drive a Cadillac made in the past 20 years, then drive your Cruze. Tell me which one rides better. I had a new Caddy STS in 2006. The 2005 Cobalt rode better; a base Cobalt at that! I just test drove a DTS and the Cruze rides nearly the same...

    It seems like every thread I see are people lowering their car. Is there any method possible to increase the ride height in the Cruze? I'm a cheapskate so chances are I won't actually do any work. I am curious though, as when it comes to unmaintained roads (or snow if I ever see it again) I...

    I wanna get the strut tower bars (front and rear), coil overs, sway bars and the chassis braces....but is there a negative side to having all these pieces on the car at all at once? I wanna track and autoX this car in the future.

    I know I need to mod it more. I've been thinking about doing the rear lower plate replacement as well. We just got done washing it and I Plasti Dipped the rear emblem. So far the only mod thing I've done to it besides that was to pull the plugs out today and set them all too .030 and tint the...
